Quality of this one is top notch. Aiko Aiko didn't get many in 81 so is outstanding for that alone

Beautiful Recording. Very Good Show.
With an AUD like this, who needs a matrix? It seems the Friend Nak-300 and these other AUDs are the same source with different transfers. In any case, they are all superb. Love the Iko > Miracle and Good Lovin' at the end. I'm giving this show five stars because people should be directed to this natural recording. God knows I love matrixes but, whenever a pure AUD of this quality is uploaded, it should be recognized for it's simplicity. Nice job Tim, if this is yours.

A little bit of crowd noise, but not much. This is a great set and a great show. Brent's keyboards sound great. This is truly a great show, one of my favorites.

It is very difficult not to believe that '80 and '81 are the technical peak of this band's
musical abilities. This is a nice audience recording job. It is funny to listen back how the dudes in the audience hung so attentive to every gesture and inflection happening on stage. Hey, how could you not?

It was a good year!
Very good show. I love 79 through 83!
Does anyone know why this and some other AUD's are stream only?

a little secret
1981 is the most underrated year in GD history. check into it.

Very tight, high energy show!
Downloaded this one after I saw DSO perform it! 1981 was never one of my favorite years, but this one's a keeper. Nice first set, with excellent versions of CC Rider & FOTD. Jerry is in fine form on Bird Song, and the set really ends up on a high note with Let It Grow and Deal. Many shows I have just can't regain the high energy level after drums/space. The Iko>Miracle>Stella>Good Lovin are exceptional. Oh by the way, the sound quality is excellent.
If you're really into the 79-81 sound, you'll probably think this one's a 5 star!
